Kristen Toomey is one of the top comedians in her hometown of Chicago. She has built a reputation for being a "comedy powerhouse". She is a charming, hilarious, fearless performer who attacks the stage with wit and brutal honesty about her life. Along with performing close to 300 shows a year, Toomey is also the first female producer/member of the nations premier comedy collective Comedians You Should Know. The collective produces acclaimed, sell out, weekly shows in both Chicago and LA
She recently headlined the Chicago Women’s Funny Festival and she travels on the road opening for SNL's Chris Redd. She’s also an accomplished actress having performed in several independent films.
The Chicago Reader wrote “Watching her is like watching a sitcom waiting in the wings”. She is SO much fun!
"Toomey is part of the tradition of comics who kill while sober."- Chicago Tribune
"Keep an eye out for Kristen Toomey"- Huffington Post
“Chris Redd’s opening act on the road is fellow Chicagoan Kristen Toomey, who describes herself in her Twitter bio as “I look like Madonna; if she had never never left Michigan. Comedian. Mother. Fucker.” In person, she also looks and carries herself as if Amy Poehler had become a mother and gone wild first before starting comedy. Toomey has a raunchy sense of humor that suggests she doesn’t much care what her two kids (13 and 9) think of her talking this way to strangers, let alone in the house.” - Thecomicscomic
Daryll is a comic that doesn’t hide the embarrassing qualities and moments that make him who he is. Born and raised on the mean streets of small town Wisconsin, he’s quickly acclimated himself to the quiet life of Chicago. Daryll is a graduate of The World Famous Second City Training Center’s Writing and Stand-Up Programs. He is a Producer for a weekly show at the Laugh Factory called Verified Laughs, a Producer of Stray Bits, and has written a monthly sketch comedy show for Second City. This year Daryll has performed in clubs throughout the country including Las Vegas, Dallas, Denver, and The World Famous Comedy Story in Los Angeles.
Sohrab Forouzesh is a Chicago based comedian and writer who won't take it personally if you say his name wrong. He moved to the U.S from Iran when he was just eight years old, and his material is heavily influenced by his experiences as a fat Persian kid growing up in America. His rapid-fire delivery paired with his down to earth reliability is what makes him a favorite of the local Chicago comedy scene. He was recently named a finalist for StandUP NBC, and he’s also a regular at the world famous Laugh Factory, Comedy Bar, and Zanies Comedy Club.
Sohrab got his start in comedy while attending Western Michigan University where he won The Kalamazoo Comedy Competition and was a finalist in the TBS and Rooftop Comedy’s National College Comedy Competition. Before graduating college he opened for Nick Swardson and performed at the prestigious Gilda’s Laughfest Comedy Festival. He's an Iranian comedian even your racist uncle will love.
